Read yourself...happy?

Very much like these hook-lines you might see in self-help books (such as 'read yourself thin' or 'think skinny')......I have found that reading synonyms for calming words really helps me de-stress...ok look, whilst I have no problem admitting that one of my favourite books is in fact the thesaurus, you might think this is a little strange...but here, try it and see...

Peace, calm, serenity, contentment, composure, harmony, lull, placidity, concilation, relaxation, reserve, stillness, tranquility, armistice...

What did it make you feel? hmmmmm...peaceful, perhaps???
Good for stress and negativity (provided you hit up the antonyms of 'stress' and 'negativity' of course!!)

But regardless, I woke up far calmer than normal..(i.e. BEFORE I read the thesaurus hahhaaaaha!)
So why do I feel so calm today?? My work, worries, debts and regrets pile as high as they have ever been and yet I feel unusually calm...This is certainly saying something, normally I am an extremely highly strung/cynical/depressive(!) individual.
Today though, I feel.. good. Euphoric, even.

Euphoria, bliss, ecstasy, enthusiasm, elation, jubilation, intoxication, fervor, delirium, delight, rapture, rhapsody...

I wonder if looking up 'hype', to get hyped for a big night out, or 'confidence', for any aspect of life or performance (or both if you consider them one and the same) would work? I have a feeling it would.
...For me anyway.

'Elation, jubilation and intoxication' has a marvellous ring to it, don't you think? ...Especially the intoxication part.

...And here are the songs that never fail to make me feel euphoric...

Peace, my friends x


Really loving the random colour combinations that people are indulging in... i have always loved mixing super strange and clashing (is there such a thing??) i guess, i like this trend cos it makes me look less wierd!!

Guess the fuck what??

If you're a lame-o like me, you'll be excited to find that many asian ebay shops are selling cheap knockoffs of both these designer shoe styles.... haaaa not a real cow in sight, producing these PLEATHER bad boyssss!

The colour combinations seen on the fakes do not exist for the designer i'm pretty hopeful and confident that they're definitely the actual product (and not photos of the designer original, hoping to mislead us into buying em, as can be the way with ebay..)
anyway you can see they're fake leather quite clearly in the photos above...

...and here are the Peter Jensen and prada...

You may be wondering how I, as a designer, can support such outright fakery but when they're this good, of shoes so coverted, for such little money (listen up! they cost between £24 and £34!!!)..why not.
I mean seriously...guess the fake?? its pretty hard.

If you want further details of specific shops...i'll be happy to advise loves...


...whether they be plastic, living or otherwise vegetable...

Regarding america's rejoicing (notice the little 'a') in Bin Laden's death, all i can do is quote (was goonna saay 'STRUT'!):

"I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." 

Peace, sincerely.
